When Steve Young was drafted into the Vietnam War he did not want to go. He came home joined the Army and went to Vietnam only to come back with a heart full of grief. He was diagnosed with heart disease and asthma and even though he had tried many medications for his heart problems and asthma nothing helped. He did not want to die in battle and when he got to his home his father told him that there was help available through Transitional Housing and House of Hope a non-profit organization started by Steve Young.
From his early involvement with House of Hope Steve Young gained the insight and confidence to work on helping others which is what he does best. He founded House of Hope with his wife Cyndy. They have gone on to serve other men who suffer from drug addiction depression or post-traumatic stress. Through House of Hope they have given away over $7 million. They work hard to help those who need it and give them a sense of security and direction in their lives. Their goal is to help those who are in desperate situations and offer them a second chance in life.
There are several projects that Steve and Cyndy work on at House of Hope. The most important of which is the Transitional Housing Program where they give men living in shelters or prisons a second chance. They also provide men with job skills training and job placement to help them reintegrate themselves into society after their service. Steve and Cyndy always do volunteer work for House of Hope to help the needy.
